Similar to our recent fawning adoration of Tim Gunn and his philosophy (“make it work!), today’s message is about utilizing the tools at our disposal and the materials in front of us.

Work with what we have.

             When a case of the “wants” gets the better of us, that means it’s time to step back and see what’s in the pantry.  Do we REALLY need to go out and gather more?  Or do we have enough to get us through the winter?

             Fortunately, the cold dark season is nearly over with.  Even if where you are doesn’t feel like it, yet.  I promise, Spring is seriously on her way.

             We can’t be all greedy though, and that’s part of today’s reminder.  Not only how we are perfectly able to make what we have work for us, but that it is absolutely the best way for us right now.

              Within our regular rotation around the card altar, the daily draw validates that fact nicely.

“Manifesting Dreams  ~

‘My dreams are coming true!’

Card meaning:

Life foes in cycles.  There is a time for planting seeds and a time for harvesting bounty.  Right now is your time for harvesting.

Your innermost dreams and desires are manifesting.  Don’t stop the flow by doubting the process.  All is unfolding according to your highest good.

The Universe wants you to know:

The seeds of desires you planted so long ago (perhaps even before this life) are coming to fruition.  Sometimes it’s simply a matter of being still, opening your heart, and knowing that you deserve your dreams to come true.

You are worthy of greatness, and you have the ability to manifest your deepest and most heartfelt wishes.  Timing is everything, and the moment is ripe for those lingering desires to be realized.  

The bounty of the Universe is pouring into your life.

Questions to ask yourself:

What do I truly desire?  Is there anything that I need to release in order to reach my dreams?  What steps can I take to help my heartfelt wishes come true in my life?


My dreams are coming true!”

             Well, this is a welcome one.  I’m going to spend some time with those questions tonight, and work on my “Relax, Release, Receive” intentions.   Hopefully to move that manifestation more easily into place.

Today’s Update:

is the new header photo.  Not what I had intended to use, but it’s what fit.

The right size and sentiment, for now.
The right size and sentiment, for now.

             On my way home from a quick run down to our closest market, I stopped to take a picture.  But the angle was wrong.   So I just Instagrammed it instead.

No more ice and snow.

             You can see the canal in the background.  It’s really running much quicker than this view shows.  I’ll try again in a few days for another (better) shot.

  1. Don’t you just love how narrow the field is for the header? I’ve had to go back on some pictures and take them from farther away to make what I wanted in the header smaller in frame. *sigh*

    No snow!!! Lucky you. We’ve got more coming in tonight. Hopefully, AFTER I get back from taking Saver back to school. (I’m up toooo damn early today….YAWN)

    It used to be SUPER narrow with no options, now that banner area can get WAY too big. 😕

  2. Love the header. I have a few stones at the base of the computer, they are engraved with: peace, luck, love, faith, trust, and friends. I like to pick them up and feel the smoothness, rub my thumb over the word, and think about what I’ll write next. Today I’ll choose trust. : )

    I can’t even tell you how much I adore those stones. I have one, it’s pink quartz, and says LOVE.

    Excellent way to use yours. 😀
